"Brother's Keeper" as written by Richard Mullins and David Strasser....
Now the plummer's got a drip in his spigot
The mechanic's got a clank in his car
And the preacher's thinking thoughts that are wicked
And the lover's got a lonely heart
My friends ain't the way I wish they were
They are just the way they are

And I will be my brother's keeper
Not the one who judges him
I won't despise him for his weakness
I won't regard him for his strength
I won't take away his freedom
I will help him learn to stand
And I will, I will be my brother's keeper

Now this roof has got a few missing shingles
But at least we got ourselves a roof
And they say that she's a fallen angel
I wonder if she recalls when she last flew
There's no point in pointing fingers
Unless you're pointing to the truth

And I will be my brother's keeper
Not the one who judges him
I won't despise him for his weakness
I won't regard him for his strength
I won't take away his freedom
I will help him learn to stand
And I will, I will be my brother's keeper

I will be my brother's keeper
Not the one who judges him
I won't despise him for his weakness
I won't regard him for his strength
I won't take away his freedom
I will help him learn to stand
And I will, I will be my brother's keeper

    My OpinionSong: Brother's Keeper - Rich Mullins - 1st verse that mentions "a pastor who is thinking wicked thoughts". HUH? This was sung in our church last Sunday, and I was stunned by this phrase, being sung immediately before the pastor's sermon. There may, indeed, be pastors who think "wicked thoughts", but I could not believe that the person singing it was someone old enough, and was someone discerning enough to sing something with these lyrics. The pastor is a fine man, and I highly respect him. I wonder what he was thinking as he got up to preach. Just shaking my head both because of the soloist, and becaomeone actually wrote these words. There are some good thoughts in the songh, garanted, but it is not somethingT
